Dimitris Karagiannis read Computer Science at the Technical University of Berlin and was subsequently a visiting scientist at research institutions in the US and Japan. Between 1987 and 1992 he was the scientific director of the Business Information Systems Group at the Research Institute for Applied Knowledge Management (FAW) in Germany. From 1993 onwards he has been full professor at the Faculty of Computer Science at the University of Vienna, where he started the Knowledge Engineering Research Group. In 2000 he created the Open Model Initiative Laboratory (http://www.omilab.org) based on the ADOxx meta-modelling platform. His main research interests include Knowledge Management, modelling methods and Meta-Modelling platforms. Besides his engagement in national and EU-funded research projects Dimitris Karagiannis is the author of research papers and books. He serves as an expert in various international conferences and is currently on the editorial board of Business & Information Systems Engineering (BISE), Enterprise Modelling and Information Systems Architectures, Journal of Systems Integration and the Journal of Requirements Engineering. He has held appointments as visiting professor and scientific expert at many international institutions. In 1995 he established the Business Process Management Systems Approach (BPMS), which has been successfully applied in business process projects as implementation methodology within several industrial and service companies. He is the founder of the European software- and consulting company BOC (www.boc-group.com), which implements software tools based on the meta-modelling approach.
